Please replace my Oct. 12th submission with the contents below. Thank you.
I support the Sub-Committee on Proxy Reform and its efforts in favor of one that will ensure that issuers can:
1. Communicate directly with all of their shareholders (both registered and street holders)
2. Have access to street holders without being compelled to use Broadridge or any other particular firm. There needs to be the opportunity for multiple firms to compete.
3. Hold their shareholder meetings with assurance that the tabulation process is fair, accurate and transparent.
4. PAY A FAIR, MARKET-DRIVEN PRICE FOR DISTRIBUTION OF MATERIALS TO STREET HOLDERS.
